Information on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is an EU-wide privacy and data protection law that regulates how EU residents' data is protected by businesses and improves the control EU residents have over their personal data.
The GDPR is relevant for any business operating globally and not just for EU-based businesses and EU residents. Our customers' data matters no matter where it is located, which is why we have implemented GDPR controls as the core standard for all of our operations around the world.
What are personal data?
Any data that relates to an identifiable or identified individual. The GDPR covers a broad spectrum of information that could be used alone or in combination with other information to identify a person. Personal data goes beyond a person's name or email address. Some examples include financial information, political views, genetic data, biometric data, IP addresses, physical address, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
The data protection principles include requirements such as:
- The personal data collected must be treated fairly, legally and transparently and must only be used in the way that a person would reasonably expect.
- Personal data should only be collected to fulfill a specific purpose and should only be used for that purpose.
- Organizations must specify why they need personal data when they collect it.
- Personal data should not be kept longer than necessary to achieve its purpose.
- People covered by the GDPR have the right to access their personal data. They can also request a copy of their data and that their data be updated, deleted, restricted or moved to another organization.
Why is the GDPR important?
The GDPR adds some new requirements on how companies should protect the personal data of the people they collect and process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing higher penalties for violations. Beyond these facts it is simply the right thing to do. At Linkify Affiliation we firmly believe that the privacy of your data is very important and we already have solid security and privacy practices that go beyond the requirements of this new regulation.
Rights of the interested party - Access, portability and deletion of data
We understand that if you work with EU clients, you must be able to provide them with the ability to access, update, retrieve and remove personal data. We got you! We have been set up as self service from the start and have always given you access to your data and your customer data. Our customer support team is on hand to answer any questions you may have about using the API.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
